Re: THOUGHTS re: "My Cue"
I am 12,000 miles from my texts but suspect that HH kept CQ's name unchanged out of vindictiveness.

I must say I long ago noticed the point about "My Cue" being supposedly
real and "Quilty" being supposedly peudonymous. I am afraid I did
wonder whether this was just VN being a bit sloppy. When one takes into
account Brian Boyd's argument that VN simply made a mistake about the
famous 56 days, might this not be the case here too?
